Ateevia Naturals Anti-Inflammatory Cream
When looking for products to use at home, I always prefer to find something natural. There is a plethora of “home remedies” but I am not brave enough to make my own concoctions, so when I had a chance to try Ateevia Naturals Anti-Inflammatory Cream, I jumped at the chance.
It is made for minor inflammation such as arthritis, carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, tendonitis, lower back pain, heel pain and sports bruises.
What is it made out of?
The active ingredients are: Magnesia Phosphorica 6X HPUS and Phytolacca Decandra Succus 6X HPUS. (HPUS indicates the components of the product are officially monographed in the Homeopathic Pharacopea of the US.)
The inactive ingredients are: borage, safflower, pumpkin, sunflower to name a few.
Color, Smell, Texture:
This is the part I have a hard time with. I get that with naturals it is hard to mask the scents without adding a bunch of other stuff… but… it does not smell fantastic. I don’t have a problem putting it on at night, but I certainly wouldn’t put it on before I went to work. It really doesn’t smell terrible-it’s tolerable. Almost a musty smell.
The color is yellowish but it spreads clear enough that it is not noticeable.
It is a gel (like neosporin) and has just a hint of an oily feel.
Does it work?
I honestly can not say yes or no. I have used it for very mild inflammation and it always feels better, but rest usually makes my aches feel better anyway. I did not have any acute inflammation to truly test how well this works. It does say it may take some time and repeated use, so keep that in mind.
Bottom line- If you like naturals, it certainly wouldn’t hurt to give this a try. Like I said before, I would recommend putting it on before bed and washing in the morning so you aren’t smelly all day!
